Description

Around the World in Eighty Poems

This diverse poetry collection takes readers on an imaginary journey from Greenland to Great Britain by way of Nicaragua, Kenya, Hungary and many other lands. Some poems are lighthearted, some are serious, and together they evoke a world that's both exotic and familiar. An Australian tree-lizard sings for rain, a Chilean mother rocks her baby to sleep, a boy monk dozes in a Korean temple, and Jamaican children clamor for after-school treats. With poems from more than 50 different countries and exquisite illustrations, Around the World in Eighty Poems invites children to share in the richness of cultures around the globe.
